IQALUIT, NUNAVUT – I got up and walked around Iqaluit this morning. It’s positively dead. Everyone from the conference has gone. It’s really sucked the life out of this place.
Today we spent the entire day out doing visuals of Iqaluit for Levon and my TV pieces.
It’s a beautiful day for shooting outside. Bright blue skies, clear strong light.
It’s the first day we’ve spent the entire time outside. By the end of the day, despite the winter gear, despite even the Gene Simmons-like, guaranteed-to –100c Sorel winter boots, I can’t feel my feet… at all.
By the time we get back to the hotel in the evening, my feet are a ghostly white. It takes me about 30 minutes to stomp the colour back into them.
